Writing style

Some people start with the skeleton and build on this to "flesh out" the story. They have a basic outline and fill in the details.

Others start from the head and work their way down. They have no idea where the story will end up, but they go chapter by chapter until completion.

Others have some idea of the basic shape and add a chunk here, another there, slowly weaving the isolated pieces together. They have a vague idea of how to start and end, but the story comes together piece by piece in no particular order. I write this way!

Did I miss any other styles, by the way?


Just like my first semester, the workload has me a bit heavy-laden. My right eye keeps wanting to twitch. Or maybe I just sat in front of my CRT monitor too long! Cathode!
